say well, maybe there's a problem with arrogance and science needs to be addressed. we would have better science and better scientists, and a better society if we could deal with that your and what are the structural reasons for it, and how might we mitigate that? that would be my question. i think some of that has already been addressed as a competitive nature. but the other would i want to throughout his height. -- hype. i think the human genome project is a wonderful example of something that was very important and very much overhyped. so we see that all the time. so that would be my challenge. sins are bad, and we all have them, and how do we mitigate them is what my question would be. >> i love the idea of a arrogance mitigation project. we can discuss how that might look on the ground, but, you know, as you are speaking, such -- given what stuart writes about certainty and uncertainty and ignorance in his book, and, i think taking it back to the hubris aspect, one of the deepest manifestations of arrogance is in the life statements of certainty, that something is exactly thi

. this is also a policy question. at that concerns me with the regime questions of a political science professor, liberal democracy and clinical science are two types. one is regime to close the type of government you have in the form goes to your regime in the form of government, both culture and the government you should be our foreign policy, keeping gadhafi empower, is that four or in opposition to american interests? i don't get them as issues' notebook. those are policy issues. i'm mainly concerned with regime issues. but you take your point, i am making a distinction between the democratic sovereignty and so i guess they don't have an objection to the overthrow of the burmese government. it would have an objection is a policy, i don't think to be a good policy to change every country in the world i am not advocating not in any sense. we can argue about different policies. i'm saying is a form of government, the liberal democratic nationstate is superior to other forms of government. one would be global governance. others isn't autocratic regime. i talk about russia and china has autocrati

't benefit from ignorance. we don't benefit from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence. these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i am announcing today but as import-these steps are, they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference congress too must act and congress must act soon. i am calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. first, it is time for congress to require universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] ville law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background checks and over the last 14 years that has cut 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. it is hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that is not safe, it is not smart, it is not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun whether from a licensed dealer or private seller you should at least have to show you are not a felon or someone we believe prohibited from buying

things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme one, gimme one, gimme one! the power of the "name your price" tool. only from progressive.
and science teachers read for the future. we must harness new ideas to revamp the tax code and reform our schools and empower citizens with the skills they need to work harder and reach higher. lou: he did not actually say education but he did mention the word reform. he wants to change everything. if you believe the data the federal education department puts out you may think there is no need it only reflected the reality. the education department is a giddy that shows high-school graduation rate is 78-point to%. 70-point to% that is a 35 year, and not a high but the best this report, think about it. 21% is not getting it done. the education department also notes, about this, the national dropout rate is 3 percent overall down from 4% last year. are you kidding me? if only 78.2% are getting it done how does that end up at 3%? new mask? federal math? political math. is a joke not funny brought to by the department of education. a report from a nonprofit group last year told the difference story that dropouts to do you to be a significant national crisis and their least 1,550 high-school i

danahur, to the upside, likes testing measurement. this company is doing work with life sciences, with embryo banks, with things that are just so blow away, that people want gene sequencing. this is a real company. it is an american company and it's great. >> amazing what the revolution that's under way. you'll be able to take your dna with you on your ipad. >> that's exactly them. >> keep in mind, if you pencil out the numbers above 65 for an lbo, it's pretty tough. here there is not a large shareholder who is going to roll everything in with even more money outside. let's keep an eye on it. interesting situation. certainly wanted to point it out. the stock up almost 10%. >> coming up next, apple's recent slide, due to investors being dissatisfied with their own lives. and the ceo of zylinx. the early movers here on wall street. >>> over at the nasdaq, we're awaiting the first trade for norwegian cruise lines, pricing above the range at $19 a share. it had been $16 to $18 a share. this is a hot space over the past year. royal caribbean, up 30% in the last year. carnival up 11%.
to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> we had hoped to bring you an interview with walmart's head of u.s. operations right now, but we're unable to do so. good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. about 20 minutes ago, maybe even less at this point, i received a call from walmart, and they have canceled the interview that we had previously scheduled with walmart u.s. ceo bill simon. he spoke earlier today, gave a speech at the national retail federation's big show, discussing things like walmart boosting sources of u.s. products by $50 billion over the next ten years. offering jobs to veterans, when they come back from active duty. but they decided to cancel our interview today. they simply said it was a scheduling issue, and that they were on their way to the airport. that's all that they would say at this time. really, it's the viewers that lose out unfortunately, because we had hoped to bring you this interview. we'll do what we can to revive it in the coming days and weeks. >> that's interesting, because they obviously had a
, that it's better not to know. we need to know and it's worth studying, and we should embrace the science and allow the research to go forward so we can learn more about the effect of violence in the entertainment industry -- depicted through entertainment -- and the impact it may or may not have on society and on children. so that was a very specific item that he did include as part of his package. and i think generally, the proposals the president put forward yesterday were recognized as fairly substantive and comprehensive, and that's one of them. >> very last thing, on the debt ceiling. republicans like pat toomey have suggested that you should prioritize what debts you pay off so that things like social security get paid -- payments. as the president said in his press conference last week, he wants them to be paid; wants to make sure people don't lose their benefits. why not prioritize those payments? i just want to give you a chance to respond to the republican plan that's out there. >> sure. well, there's not a specific plan; there's somebody talking about it. but let's be real her
in the foods and nutritious food ingredients areas. i think those areas are areas where innovation and science really bring a difference to the customers, and they're taking it up and they're utilizing it. i think other areas, there's a wait and see attitude. you know, are we, in this country, going to deal with our deficit? you know, as china comes through their transition in power, they're the two biggest hurdles i see in front of us that we still have to clear to create a real strong economic environment for the world. >> so, the deficit, and the talk that we've heard now coming out of washington, is that we're going to push things back, the debt ceiling will be pushed off essentially for three months. is that good news or bad news? i mean what would you like to see happen right away? >> well, i do think that that just continues the uncertainty. you know, i think if there's a time frame and a time line and they can make real progress that that's a positive. i think to the extent that they just keep -- if they keep moving it out i think that's going to be a negative. you know, certainly it's

in history and i think people who sort of follow the science of sport realized that is anything but the case but this is a system with a massive, massive number of false negatives and very few false positives and if you are really trying hard and have a lot of resources then you shouldn't fail the test. me and a colleague lena roberts reported last year he also had people in the anti-doping labs helping him figure out how to skip by those tests you should never fail if you have that kind of test. >> i mean, when you look at what he has done, what is is the reaction of his fries, tse people closest to him? >> anybody talk to them? >> well, it is an interesting place, because knows are the people that get forgotten, especially the x friends, i know he reached out to half a dozen people who were harmed the most, this is not a story about lying, as the story about protecting the lie by viciously attacking other people who can't fight back, attacking with lawyers and powers and all means necessary that lance attacks but reached out over the last few days, i think a couple of conversations have ha

[applause] i know plenty of them and they struggle. picture this. you are a single parent, but you have to come up with a way how to feed your family, work at the same time to pay bills, and go to school to get an education to better your life. last year, i only made $8,000 the whole year. my food stamps were cut. that was the only way i was able to feed my son, $85 a month. the average spent -- average family spends close to $500 or more. you expect me to spend $85 and live with that for my son. we had to be sent to a shelter because my mother no lon

in math and science. teachers have more support and flexibility to respond to student's individual needs and standards and accountability are high. but achievement gaps persist. and they will until we go deeper. every educator knows that reading sufficiency by the third grade determines academics. achievement gaps begin to form in the early years. today in massachusetts only 61% of all third graders are proficient in english language arts. for african-american 38%. hispanic 38%. toddlers, ingrant -- infants, other precoolers, 30,000 of them are on the wait list for early education opportunities. let's ensure that every child in massachusetts has access to high quality early education. [applause] we know from educators, academic research and from our own experience as parents that investing in our children at the young age pays huge dividends for them and for our community as a whole. let once again fund k-12 education higher than we did last year. our lead in education is too important to lose. our competitors state, competitor countries are not slowing down. neither should we. and as we

, you'll get penicillin, penicillin is the key for everyone. science is on bioengineered drugs, et cetera, where, in fact, in the future we will each get a unique drug that is bioengineered for us. how on earth does that old regulatory system move to accommodate the new one? this is extremely difficult and, of course, they are bound by the systems, right, they are bound by their history, as we all are, and this is becoming extreme difficult. in area after area, and, of course, this is, particularly the cutting edge innovative businesses that constantly get frustrated. we can grow, we can get so much bigger, we can bring in so much more money, we could create 74 jobs. and yet, there's a regulatory apparatus is simply not done to deal with the rate of technological change of the 21st century. so i think that would be the second way we could improve performance. the third way would be to take performance seriously. as i say, we have, the government is now up to its ears in performance methods. when i was having to be an advocate for the 20 years ago there was a brand-new idea. i said
